Hit the asphalt in a roundabout, 16S

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I did a too tight turn in a roundabout with my 16S.

The pedal hit the ground and I fell for the first time in 3-4 years.

Now I'm thinking I want a wheel with higher ground clearance.

Is that maybe the 18XL?

Definitely 18XL has higher positioned footplates, but don't lock your mind on one brand. 18XL is rather old wheel.

What would other good options be?

18XL is old and for me the best wheel. Latest versions are almost free of issues so if you are looking for an everyday commutation wheel, it's a perfect choice. I do about 20-30km per day on mine for now almost 3 years and I'm very very happy with it.
